vacuum sealer

post #1 of 4

I have not done the hot water bath in 5 years used the vacuum sealer with the wide mouth jar sealer. It works great. I'am wondering why you have to

ref.the pickles if you use the jar sealer ?

Because botulism can and might grow in the jar...  Water bath canning is ONLY for acidic foods....  botulism can't grow in acidic foods..  a vacuum sealer does not adequately remove all oxygen for preserving as well as pressure canning... 


You should get a US gov't preserving foods booklet or us the internet and only use gov't approved methods....

Holy cow.


Your saying you vac seal then leave un-refrigerated?


That sounds dangerous to me.
